Certified ScrumMaster Workshop

In this Scrum Master training course you will learn, understand and execute on the three overarching principles behind Scrum: iterative development, self-management, and visibility.

Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, this Scrum Master training course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster. This 2–day Scrum certification training course is suitable for those practicing or looking to practice the art of the ScrumMaster, but is highly valuable for anyone involved in Scrum (Managers, Team Members, Product Managers, etc.).

Even projects that have solid, well–defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations. Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.

This certification course is backed by ASPE's Exam Pass Guarantee. Upon completion of our ScrumMaster Certification Course, if after two attempts within the 60–day evaluation period you have not passed the exam and obtained certification, ASPE will allow you to attend another session of our Scrum Master Certification Course free of charge and pay for you to retake your certification exam.

The Scrum Alliance's mission is to promote increased awareness and understanding of Scrum, provide resources to individuals and organizations using Scrum, and support the iterative improvement of the software development profession.

    The Scrum Alliance® has recently transformed the Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification into a more rigorous certificate program with updated content, increased difficulty and a pass/fail outcome. Previously all candidates were initially granted Scrum certification regardless of score, but this is no longer the case. To help ensure candidates' success, the Certified ScrumMaster Workshop provides participants with all the information required to take the new evaluation and become Scrum certified. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster through class interaction, case studies, group exercises and workshops.
